|More About Our Family
|More About Us|
We met in high school and began dating when we were 18. We are proud parents to a bright and loving six year old girl and have always wanted a large family to care for. Our family loves taking our fluffy, affectionate dog on walks and hikes. We are a Christian family, so our faith plays a large role in our everyday life and we look forward to sharing our faith with your child.
Our family loves being active together and we enjoy many traditions together throughout the year. During the holiday season, we travel to a tree farm to cut down our family Christmas tree. We spend the season decorating, baking, and sipping hot cocoa by our fireplace. In the winter months, we love sleigh riding and snowboarding. When spring rolls around, we spend time in our large backyard and take our dog on lots of walks in our local arboretum. New Jersey summers are a blast! We love hosting family barbecues, playing on our swing set, eating ice cream on our porch, going to the beach, and bike riding. In the fall, we love to make s'mores at our fire pit. We enjoy the fall foliage on family hikes and we love to go apple picking.
|My Husband Michael|
Michael is simply the best man I have ever known. His work in law enforcement means he keeps a level head in all situations and knows how to lead our family. His work provides our family with the means to travel, great healthcare, and comfort. Although Michael spends a lot of time working to support our family, he always manages to make time to be a dad. It is heartwarming to see him enthusiastically dress up to attend tea parties in our daughter's playroom. He gladly dances, sings, and participates in whatever make-believe game our daughter plans for him. When we fostered, Michael opened his whole heart to the baby we cared for and loved our foster child as his own.
|My Wife Kimberly|
Kimberly is an incredible mother with complete devotion to her family. She is creative, nurturing, funny, and affectionate. She worked in education for over 8 years and although Kimberly loved working with kids in the classroom every day, she gave up her career for the best job ever - to be a stay-at-home mom. Kimberly has always wanted to be a mother and considers parenting the most important job she will ever have. Kimberly loves being at the beach, crafting, baking and watching a good movie at home in front of the fireplace. During her busy day, she always finds time to get a workout in and take care of herself.
|Our Daughter Briella & Our Extended Family||Briella is smart and athletic with an infectious laugh. She loves spending time with our close friends and extended family. Kimberly comes from a large family with her mother, siblings, aunts, uncles, and cousins living in our area. We spend time with them on a regular basis. Some of Briella's favorite memories are made with her cousins and 2nd cousins. Michael's parents, sister, grandparents, aunts and uncles are local as well. We spend weekends with them for family dinners and go on vacations together. Our extended family is a huge part of our lives and are very supportive of our plans to adopt. |
|We Live In New Jersey||We experience all four seasons in New Jersey and take advantage of what each season has to offer. It is quite wonderful to take trips to New York City to spend quality time together. We are a short ride to the beach as well. In the summer months we spend a lot of time at the Jersey Shore. We play in the surf, build sand castles, collect shells, and go on rides at the boardwalk. We enjoy attending local carnivals, parades, and fireworks throughout the year.
